The study of MORALITY or what is right, wrong, good and evil The Bible does give us detailed instructions through Biblical principles and the study of scripture defines how we should act and live as Christians. Its principles give us the standards by which we must conduct ourselves in those situations where there are no explicit instructions. In John MacArthur’s book, Right Thinking In A World Gone Wrong, the heart of Christian Ethics is the Gospel. Why? Through the___________________________________________work of Holy Spirit, the inner heart of man has been renewed!
